“These mashed potatoes are creamy, fluffy and slightly tangy thanks to the creme fraiche. A ricer is used on the potatoes to make them really smooth, but you could always mash by hand. Simple goodness! From Food & Wine. *Note: the mashed potatoes can be made ahead of time and kept at room temperature for up to 3 hours. Reheat before serving. (You may need to add a bit more milk.)*”
